Earwolf SynopsisEdit

IT’S BEEN 5 years of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast and all your favorites have returned for a bro out sesh! Get ready to experience our unbelievable open door policy as friends of the show Marissa Wompler, Miss Listler, Jason Mantzoukas, and Traci Rearden stop by as well as a new friend by the name of Mattilda Besserina. That’s not all, Mike the Janitor returns to break in the new studio and the Bachelor Brothers are back with an all new business venture babe!


Marissa and Miss Listler continue some stories from their appearance the week prior, before being confronted in-studio by Traci. Miss Listler confides in Traci that she B. A. Baracused her for a week to keep her from going to Marissa's birthday party. Marissa and Traci discuss the slam book that they made, and how it strengthened their friendship. However, they are not able to salvage a strong relationship by the time Marissa and Listler have to leave. 

Scott, Jason, and Traci meet Mattilda Besserina Smith, the 12-year-old president of the Matt Besser Fan Club. Mattilda was born to Matt Besser superfans and recently received a Matt Besser voice transplant for her 12th birthday. She shows off some impressions that have been programmed into her voice box, but has to leave so she doesn't stay out too late.

Scott, Traci, and Jason discuss Traci's sex life and the undying love she seems to have for Scott. Mike the Janitor makes a return appearance and they talk about his past life as a Harvard math professor. They also discuss Body Swap movies, Body Grow movies, and the TV show Cheaters

The Bachelor Brothers arrive fashionably late as an anniversary present for Scott, and offer him one night with them to do whatever he wants, though "it should probably be gross." They also discuss the new people they've signed to their record label, and their newest business venture: musical note-shaped cars.

JW Stillwater arrives at the very end of the episode after he heard a crime go on his Bearcat scanner. He and Jason get into a small tiff when Jason reveals that he has a bigger fanboat than JW's.
